Help me with my codes?

I recently purchased a 1958 F100 with the vin F10C8R2596

I think I know what the vin means by checking in the LMC catalog and other sources but the plate inside the glove box has two more lines of data that I am not sure the meaning of since the plate has been painted over. The line beneath the vin line is
110N 18D F01
The next line is
05000 153 4100 2771
Any thoughts? These don't seem to line up with any of the number plates that I have seen on line.

Not too sure of what they are either. There is a fella here who would know if he sees this post.

By the way, welcome to FTE!

F10 = F100.

C = 292 2V

8 = 1958.

R = San Jose CA Assembly Plant.

2596? = 1958 Numerical Sequence of Assembly, the trucks specific serial number / You are missing a number, there should be 5.

110" Wheelbase.

N = Not listed in the parts catalog for trucks, only for cars (Sea Spray Green). Trucks: This might be a Domestic Special Order color code.

18D = Assembled April 18, 1958.

F = Borg Warner T-98 4 Speed Manual Transmission.

01 = Ford 9" Rear Axle / 3.70-1 / 3,300 lb. Rear Axle Capacity.

5,000 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

153 net HP @ 4100 RPM

2771 = Domestic Special Order number. Something was installed by FoMoCo that wasn't an RPO (Regular Production Order) on 1958 F100's, or the truck was painted a non standard color per the original purchasers request.

Thru 1962, there is no DSO code stamped on the Rating Plate (1948/60) or on the Warranty Plate (1961/62), unless the vehicle is a Domestic Special Order.

btw: When 8D is typed together, you get that smilie face, unless you "disable smilies in text." When typing 8D together, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the box that says so.

Advice on 58 F100 rebuild/mod

Thanks for the answers. This clears up a lot of questions we have had. Maybe you could point me to a good place for parts besides LMC if there is one. I will be needing plenty including rear bed corners for which I am unsure of an aftermarket replacement piece. May have to fabricate it.

Any fatherly advice on 1958 F100 rebuilds?

Auto Krafters, Blue Oval Truck Parts, Carolina Classics, Dennis Carpenter, Mac's Antique Auto Parts, National Parts Depot, The Truck & Car Shop.

All have repro parts for your truck and catalogs that can be downloaded. Or you can call their 800 numbers and order their free paper parts catalogs.

Dennis Carpenter (800-476-9653 / 1957/66 truck catalog) is the largest reproducer, sells the best quality parts, while LMC is just the opposite.

Thanks for that thing, I wondered what that meant.
Also, Numberdummy, I know you have the correct info and a lot more experience deciphering it. I just have the book published by Motorbooks International and it does list the N listed as green for the F series. I have found a couple other anomalies in the book too. Thanks
